Support Our Work
Time and Money! It's what we all wish we had more of, and its exactly what we need to develop and continue our work.
If you wish to support us please look at the campaigns below for which we are currently trying to raise funds and consider making a donation, no matter how small everything counts. Alternatively, if you wish to donate your time instead then we will be looking for volunteers out in the field in Costa Rica, so please get in touch for more information.
Support our spider monkey research
We are currently seeking funds to increase the impact and scope of this project, including developing an automated detection and recognition system for the target sounds in our recordings, genetic analysis of faecal samples that will allow for a robust study of spider monkey diet, and a salary to employ one local field assistant to train them for the continuance of this project. Employing local field assistants provides jobs locally and involves the community in the project and conservation.
Any amount is greatly appreciated, however, in return for your kind support we would like to offer you the following rewards, designed to credit our funders in personal ways and help spread the message about our work:
